Reckless Girls (2022) by Rachel Hawkins

I have to say that I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did, I knew I was going to like it, because Hawkin’s debut thriller was a crazy ride I thoroughly enjoyed.

In Reckless Girls we follow some people who find that it would be a great idea to sail to this desserted Island with a somewhat eerie reputation. What I great idea, right? Gets better when they get to their destination, trust me.

The women in this book are fantastic – layered, grey, unreliable, some are kind of a hot mess, and completely magnetic. I wanted to be friends with them, even though I probably wouldn’t trust any. The relationships between all characters as the tension rises is so thrilling. I really couldn’t put it down. Unfortunetely, I feel that the men weren’t as well fleshed out – they were very similar and honestly the kind of men I do not respect.

Hawkins narrative is so addicting and enjoyable. She has a natural ability to draw the reader in and keep them immersed in the world she creates. Her plotting is tight and even though she throws some fun twists, she always play fair.

Closed Circle. Isolated Setting. Strong Female Characters. Yes, please.
